Labirinto Masone and Fidenza Village
The tour is available every day but not on Tuesday.
You will be picked up from your accommodation/location at 2.30 pm and from here we will head to the Labirinto della Masone.
The largest labyrinth in the world was created at Fontanellato from an idea of Franco Maria Ricci, publisher, designer, art collector and bibliophile.
Ricci, an aesthete of sublime taste who has always been a lover of beauty, has created an elegant, enticing maze. A place of culture, extending over eight hectares (80,000 sq. metres) of land, designed by him with the architects Pier Carlo Bontempi, who completed the surprising buildings, and Davide Dutto, who planned the geometry of the park.
The labyrinth is at Fontanellato, Parma, a village full of history.
The bamboo labyrinth should be considered as a legacy to that strip of the Po Valley including Parma, its countryside and the nearby towns, which Ricci has been tied to since birth and whose importance for art and the Italian landscape is often undervalued.
Ricci is fascinated not only by the vicinity to a place so full of beauty but also the fondness for Fontanellato's rural nature, specifically the Masone estate, which has been in his family for generations.
The labyrinth is an original place of many shape, starting from the architecture of the whole project.
There are three forms of classic labyrinth:
- the Cretan maze, with seven spirals;
- the Roman maze, with right angles and divided into quarters (four inter-communicating labyrinths);
- the Christian maze, with 11 spirals, of the Charters type.
